Treasure Island

David Andre' Klopper

(7 January 1962 / Durban, South Africa)


Man, life has just gotta change,
You're feeling low, got nowhere to go,
Your head is on fire and they say you're a liar,
What are you gonna do?
How will you ever break down,
The pain that's all around?

You get up every day to try again,
Where will it end, will your heart ever mend.
You say that you feel nothing,
Time stands still,
Nothing can give you a thrill,
You live your life underground,
Trying to be profound,

When they realise it is not you that lies,
That should be no surprise,
What a time to be alive, just hope you can survive!

While you listen no one talks,
While you crawl everyone walks,
When you shout only I hear you!

If I could help I'd come running,
If I cared I'd use all my cunning,
Shout and I close my ears,
Cry and I'll taste your tears,
Let go and lose your fears!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
